XmlMapping class

Specifies the information that is used to establish a mapping between the parent structured document tag and an XML element stored within a custom XML data part in the document.

To learn more, visit the Structured Document Tags or Content Control documentation article.

public class XmlMapping


CustomXmlPart { get; }Returns the custom XML data part to which the parent structured document tag is mapped.
IsMapped { get; }Returns true if the parent structured document tag is successfully mapped to XML data.
PrefixMappings { get; }Returns XML namespace prefix mappings to evaluate the XPath.
StoreItemId { get; }Specifies the custom XML data identifier for the custom XML data part which shall be used to evaluate the XPath expression.
XPath { get; }Returns the XPath expression, which is evaluated to find the custom XML node that is mapped to the parent structured document tag.


Delete()Deletes mapping of the parent structured document to XML data.
SetMapping(CustomXmlPart, string, string)Sets a mapping between the parent structured document tag and an XML node of a custom XML data part.


Shows how to set XML mappings for custom XML parts.

Document doc = new Document();

// Construct an XML part that contains text and add it to the document's CustomXmlPart collection.
string xmlPartId = Guid.NewGuid().ToString("B");
string xmlPartContent = "<root><text>Text element #1</text><text>Text element #2</text></root>";
CustomXmlPart xmlPart = doc.CustomXmlParts.Add(xmlPartId, xmlPartContent);

Assert.AreEqual("<root><text>Text element #1</text><text>Text element #2</text></root>", 

// Create a structured document tag that will display the contents of our CustomXmlPart.
StructuredDocumentTag tag = new StructuredDocumentTag(doc, SdtType.PlainText, MarkupLevel.Block);

// Set a mapping for our structured document tag. This mapping will instruct
// our structured document tag to display a portion of the XML part's text contents that the XPath points to.
// In this case, it will be contents of the the second "<text>" element of the first "<root>" element: "Text element #2".
tag.XmlMapping.SetMapping(xmlPart, "/root[1]/text[2]", "xmlns:ns='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema'");

Assert.AreEqual(xmlPart, tag.XmlMapping.CustomXmlPart);
Assert.AreEqual("/root[1]/text[2]", tag.XmlMapping.XPath);
Assert.AreEqual("xmlns:ns='http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema'", tag.XmlMapping.PrefixMappings);

// Add the structured document tag to the document to display the content from our custom part.
doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "StructuredDocumentTag.XmlMapping.docx");
